    Styling Tips To Remember

    1. Don’t get comfortable with one style of draping. Try different saree draping styles like Gujarati, Maharashtrian, Bengali or Nivi style!
    2. While selecting a blouse type, consider the colour, fabric and the design that would best your body type.  
    3. Your hairstyle plays a vital role in the entire look. If you’re wearing an elaborate blouse, tie your hair up in a bun or plait to keep the attention on the blouse.  
    4. Footwear is another important element you need to pay attention to. To give yourself some length, opt for heels with a saree. 
    5. Most importantly, remember to drape your saree while wearing heels so that your saree is at the appropriate length.
